|** Persian Deer **|
Persian Fallow Deer were introduced to Cyprus in the pre-pottery Neolithic (Cypro-PPNB), if not earlier. They occur in significant numbers at the aceramic Neolithic sites of Khirokitia, Kalavasos-Tenta, Cap Andreas Kastros, and Ais Yiorkis, and were important through the Cypriot Bronze Age. A Greek legend, related by Aelianus ca 200 AD, recounts how the deer of the Lebanon and Mount Carmel reached Cyprus by swimming the Mediterranean, the head of each animal placed on the back of the deer in front of it.
Deer from Epirus in Greece are said to have reached Corfu in the same manner. While Red Deer are known to cross open water in their seasonal migrations, for example on the Scottish islands, this behaviour is unknown in Fallow Deer. Persian Fallow Deer had been considered extinct in 1951, before a small population was discovered in Khuzestan

Hi Sadegh, Welcome to TN. Good close photo of this deer, which is one of my favorite animals to see. It would be better next time you get the chance to ensure the background is more clear, but that is not always possible. TFS. Murray.
Nice photos of deer. Again there is a little more sunlight. You could adjust it and improve the contrast of the deer's body colors.
